Folks,

Before i have one made, does anyone out there have a wheel puller which fits 1922 - 1924 Kissel wood wheel huibs. The outside thread dimension appears to be 2 3/4 " at about 14 threads per inch. I am restoring a beautiful, original 1923 Kissel Brougham Opera Sedan which has a rear wheel that was possibly never dismounted. Any more pounding and I might hurt the axle or bearings!

You may call me at 313-510-8463.

All,

Measured the needed wheel puller for a 1923 Kissel Model 6-55 Sedan with wood wheels. The size is an odd one

2 3/4 " x 14 or 2 3/4 " x 16

Does anyone out there have one to sell or borrow or rent ??

Call me please.

Hi Ron,

Beautiful Kissel.

If know one responds with one to borrow the best guy to make one is George McMurtry. His phone number is 308-586-1930.

Great car guy and fantastic old time machinist.

He made a wheel puller for my '30 Buick model 47. It fit like a glove and looked like apiece of art.

Give him a call. Tell him I said hello.

Dwight,

Thank you for the help. I spoke with George and am going to buy one for the car from him. He knows what he is doing for sure, and to buy one is only 1-2 times more than renting one which may or may not be exact. George uses the hub cap to model the wheel puller.

Thanks, -- RON --

All,

I had George McMurtry in the emails above make a wheel puller using a rare Kissel hubcap as a pattern. Price was reasonable and service was fast. This wheel puller worked magnificently and the wheel came off first try with a bit of pounding, after 87 years of being rusted on.

I highly recommend this person if you need a custom wheel puller.
